All light will be eclipsed,
the ancient prophet claimed,
about the time we are not sure,
the moment was not named.

Christ echoed that same word,
the time was drawing near,
a time of judgment, yet of grace,
a mix of love and fear.

We never know ahead
the moment of our death,
when life will end, our striving cease,
we'll gasp our final breath.

Verses 4-5 follow
